SF Giants Prospects Weekly Rundown: High-A

Notable Performers

Seth Corry: 1 G (1 GS), 4.2 IP, 1 H, 2 R (1 ER), 4 BB, 5 K, 3 HBP, 1.93 ERA, 22% CSW
R.J. Dabovich: 1 G, 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K, 0.00 ERA, 47% CSW
Chris Wright: 2 G, 2.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 6 K, 0.00 ERA, 42% CSW

Seth Corry has been off to a quiet start to the 2021 season. With another effectively wild start last week, Corry’s old nemesis, his strike-throwing issues, came back this year. His walk rate has doubled compared to his stellar 2019 season. His strike rate also regressed to 53% compared to 60% a couple of years ago. The silver lining is that he is posting his career-best strikeout rate this season, but he needs to cut down his walks considerably moving forward to recover some of the lost prospect stock.

R.J. Dabovich and Chris Wright continue to overpower the High-A competition for the Emeralds. With another stellar week, Dabovich’s strikeout rate is now at 61% and his fastball that regularly touches the high-90s with a nasty curveball can be downright unhittable at times. He deserves to be called up to Double-A in the coming weeks. Wright should join him as well after another dominant week. Otherwise, it was not the best week for the Emeralds pitchers.
